    If you do a Berryman B-12 Piston Soak Procedure it could potentially help cure your oil consumption.

    Berryman B-12 is basically straight solvent and will completely obliterate any carbon clogging the rings and oil return passages. Could probably be comparable to lacquer thinner somewhat.

    It has cured my oil consumption in my Gen 2 Prius from a quart every 1,000-2,000 miles down to a negligible amount.
